Terrible terrible quality. The pillow is lumpy and the stuffing is seperated in bunches, it feels as if it is old and disintegrating under the pillow case. The shop is clear on their no return policy however I would have expected with a policy that strict there would be a product quality guarantee. I won't be ordering from them again.

I have made this pillow multiple times for highly satisfied customers. This order was from Canada and to keep shipping cost as low as possible for my buyers.It was sent in a large envelope which meant that for the week it took to get to this buyer it was tightly packaged. This may or may not have been the cause of your dissatisfaction. I explained to her that all pillows are made to order which means that the stuffing is not old or disintegrating. I do appreciate your feedback and because of it I have updated the listing description to include exactly how the pillow is produced . All KiwiNation products our checked for quality throughout the process of being produced and especially before it is package to be shipped out.

About

Passion meets Cause; My journey with sustainable fashion

My love for sustainable fashion came my freshman year of high school when I was taking environmental science and my teacher arranged an assembly from an organization called ACE (Alliance for Climate Education).
The assembly talked about everything I had learned in Conservation Club that previous year but did it all through an animated presentation so that it would grab our attention. I was intrigued to hear about their green fashion runway competition; Project Greenway. I applied and was excited to see other Chicago high school students who had designed with the earth in mind. We used materials like plastic bags, newspaper,tissue paper,etc and we re-purposed them into beautiful one of kind garments.
After the show, feeling inspired to share how beautiful saving the Earth could be I created KiwiNation so I could not only save the earth but combine it with my passion for fashion design.
I'm currently a fashion design major with a minor in sustainability at Kent State University and enjoy updating my product line as I learn new skills.

Fashion Design is my passion, Sustainability is my mission and KiwiNation allows me to do it all !

    I've always had a passion for saving the earth and fashion design, but it wasn't until a few years ago that I decided to combine the two! Ever since I've been creating wonderful crafts and fashions from re-purposed and recycled materials.
